IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CalWest Bancorp (OTCBB: CALW), the holding company for South County Bank N.A., today announced the consolidated financial results as of June 30, 2014.

Significant items for the period ending include:

  • Second quarter net loss was ($45,000), compared to a year ago net loss of ($71,000)
  • Loans decreased 1.5% quarter-over-quarter, but have increased 18% year-over-year
  • ALLL ratio remained strong at 4.31%
  • Non-performing loans reduced 23% quarter-over-quarter, are down to only $759,000, with 48.3% of the non-performing loans paying-as-agreed
  • Total deposits decreased slightly to $132 million, with 34% non-interest bearing, keeping the Bank’s cost-of-deposits low at 0.39%
  • Non-interest income returned to a more normal level of $315,000 following the OREO-related gain that occurred in Q1 2014
  • Non-interest expenses decreased $177,000 or 12% quarter-over-quarter

    “We are pleased with the continuing decline in our Non-Performing Assets which are down to 0.54% of Total Assets from 2.8% a year ago and a historical high of 7.4%,” noted Glenn Gray, President and CEO of CalWest Bancorp and South County Bank. “With asset quality under control, excess liquidity, and a low cost-of-funds of 39 basis points, our primary focus has shifted to growing our loan portfolio. While we are adding new clients, during the past quarter we purposely chose not to match some aggressive refinancing proposals in order to protect our net interest margin over the longer term. Although this resulted in a $1 million decrease in our loan portfolio, we believe it is more prudent to pursue a well-defined strategic plan than to chase loan growth at unsustainable low pricing.”
